more than a year since president obama ended war in iraq bringing the u.s. troops home. with little influence left in that war-torn country trying to rebuild the secretary is having trouble urging iraq's leaders to stop aiding iran and allowing the overflights of iran, what we believe to be weapons, ammunitions over to syria. the iranians are using iraqi airspace to make that happen. john kerry wants it to stop. how did he do? joining me now a man who fought in that war, c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america, pete hegseth. how much leverage does the skraeufrt have? >> not very much. you might say that this is our chickens coming home to roost. when you don't follow through and don't have influence and don't have a relationship then the prime minister of iraq is more likely to hedge towards iran and his neighbors to the east than he is to help us because we don't have that influence. the folks we have left in baghdad don't have a mandate to operate. john kerry shows up asking for a favor and he can't get one. >>brian: he can't get one because they don't need us right now. but they

the world. president obama has made a unique and significant contribution to the security of the state of israel, both through further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the countries and the joint development of technology to defend civilian populations against missiles and terrorism. the iran drone system is a prominent example of his cooperation, saving lives of many and ensuring the safety of citizens all over israel. for these reasons, shimon peres, president of the state of israel, will confirm barack obama, president of the united states of america, the highest civilian award of the state of israel, the presidential medal of distinction.
